Imaging post bariatric surgery 02 Nov 2018

Obesity is a serious epidemic worldwide associated with morbidity and mortality. Surgical methods of weight
loss principle provide a sustained method to decrease the body mass index (BMI) and reduce these risks.

Several types of surgery exist based on two principles; the restriction of intake volume and procedures that promote
malabsorption, notably by-passing the stomach. These offer sustained weight loss but are not without their own
unique risks and complications. The author provides an overview of the indications and types of surgical options

• To understand the anatomy of the surgical procedures for obesity and review normal findings post bariatric
• To identify common post-surgical complications
• To have a main focus on CT but other modalities as relevant
